Blogger Takeover: College Housewife’s Chimichurri Cauliflower Steakhouse Salad

Hello lovelies! 

Elizabeth here from The College Housewife! I’m thrilled to be here on the Taylor Farms blog. I have been a long time salad lover and Taylor Farms is second to none when it comes to salad kits at home. I don’t know about you guys but salads are my absolute go to for lunches! I’ve had a blast over the years creating recipes with their salads. Some of my favorite recipes  are Healthy Greek Chicken Pita wraps with their Mediterranean Crunch Salad and a Fall Harvest Gorgonzola Salad with their Sweet Kale Chopped Kit.

Steakhouse Wedge Chopped Kit

You’ve got to get your hands on Taylor Farms new Chopped Salad Kits. There are four new flavors and the Steakhouse Wedge salad has been on repeat in our house. It’s filled with crispy onions, bacon, steakhouse seasoning and rich blue cheese dressing. For a lighter summer swap out were topping this steakhouse classic with a steak… a cauliflower steak!

There really isn’t too much you can’t do with cauliflower these days and one of my favorite ways is a juicy, cauliflower steaks. These cauliflower steaks are a great base for any kind of sauce, basil, chimichurri, aioli, you name it! Today were keeping flavors bright for summer time with an herbed cauliflower steak with bright chimichurri. This salad makes for a great lunch or a refreshing summer side dish for 4th of July or a summer BBQ! Check out their store locator to find it near you!
